Checked trim pots are at 12 o'clock (little blue screws on ECU) and set the air bleed screws to 1.5 front and 3/4 rear (big brass screws on throttle body) as per a previous thread on gabro chips. Bike seem to run fine but can anyone explain why the air bleeds are set differently front-rear and not the same?. Please forgive my ignorance just need to know for peace of mind that i am not damaging things. thanks I think you'll find that its to do with the uneven firing interval the V60 engines produce setting them the same produces a crap idle. If you're doing it by the old school of ear then go with whats giving the best results to you I'm sure you'll be acceptably close so you're not damaging things. The best way is make sure things like manifold pressures between the cylinders are synchronised using mercury tube gauges or similar. Do a search and you'll find much has been written on this subject, noteably posts by the likes of Maestro kzmille, even Gabro himself and others have covered this ground many times over put it is faster words, if you dont know how to do it, spend 150 bucks and have a shop do it, its worth every dollar... i had Factory pro do it when i bought my chip up there, made a WORLD of difference, i set it up and thought it ran **** , but after i got it back, they added 6 HP and 8 lbs of torque, and it sounded better... so thats my 2 old dirty pennies.. ,,,

Have a problem with a dr650 went to a full stainless exhaust open up the air box fitted 150 main jet .NOW bike runs rich on idle can turn airscrew home and bike will not stop .Could it be a choke prob

If it is running rich you have the wrong size jet fitted, tuning a DR650 uses jets sizes from about 130 to 180 depending what has been done to the engine & bike

Ignition turns but bike dont start

I read your problem as bike turns over on starter but won't fire up. Check all fuses first, check the fuel if it is old get new fuel. Did the problem suddenly happen or has the bike been standing for a while.

Have you checked the kill switch is set to the run position. Has the fuel gone onto reserve. Try opening the filler cap and leave it open while trying to start. Do you need to pull in the clutch lever to start the bike, my Suzi SV will crank over but only starts when the clutch lever is pulled in. Do you have alarm fitted if so it may have disabled the ignition. If your ignition key has an electronic chip fitted this may be the cause of your problem. If normal ignition/key are fitted has the switch got any thing inside it i.e. water that has shorted it out. Spray switch through key slot with WD 40 or similar. Try removing 1 spark plug cap fit an a spare spark plug into the cap and lay it on the engine. Does it spark when the engine turns over. If so possible a fuel problem.

How adjust the carburator???

Be careful while doing this
1. Pull out the air pipe between the carb and the head. You will see that a rubber pipe is fitted to carb insulator. Pull it out.There will be a brass pipe. Close it with your finger. If you do not close it your bike will not idle.
2. Now set the mixture screw to 1.5 turns out.
3. Now start the bike. Be sure to close the air injection at carb insulator with thumb of your left hand.
4. Now increase the idle by idle screw to 2000 rpm.
5. Now slowly turn out the screw. I repeat very slowly.
6. You will see the idling rising. continue until maximum idling is obtained. Beyond a point idle will not increase at all and instead decrease. At the point where idle is highest stop turning the screw.
7. You will see your idling is highest and also the rpm needle is constant.
8. Now decrease the idle to 1.2k. stop the engine.
9. Now remove your finger from carb insulator and connect the air injection pipe.
10. restart engine and check idle.

1994 yz 250 stuck on high idle as if bike going to blow up, just got bike running fine, i changed air filter and altered original carb settings do know why tried to put stock plug in because it had b8es...

When you open and close the throttle can you hear the slide hitting the throttle stop?have you removed the slide, and fitted it in the reverse order, this would restrict full opperation of the slide leaving it in the part open position, the cut out side of the slide faces rearmost away from the engine, if you have exsess play in the cable at the carb, it is poss you may have fitted it wrong, unscrew the tickover screw almost all the way until you no longer hear the slide hitting it on throttle closure, start the bike you may have to hold the throttle at the desired revs, whilst doing this screw in the tickover screw until it just increases the tickover, you can now release the twist grip and addjust the idle to suite

Ok, i recently purchased a DTR 125 R 2000 model with running problems The bike will start with the choke on, then die with the choke off, the fuel/air mixture screw was mashed up so i purchased another...

Sounds like a vacuum leak is leaning out the mixture....check the intake between carb and engine for leaks...another source may be tjhe crankcase seals are leaking.

Kx 125 reed valves

The reed valve assembly should hold solvent withot leaking. Remove for test. Disassemble and clean reeds and reed seat. Perfect seal is very important.

Good luck,

96 Honda Magna air filter location?

It's under the gas tank. You need to remove the gas tank to access the air filter. There are two screws on either side of the rubber two-port air intake that need to be removed. then slide the air intake down (pull toward the rear of bike) to slide it off. Then remove the screws that hold down the air filter cover (about 9 of them - four short ones in the front and 5 long ones on the rear half). Now pop the cover up and slide it out sideways between the bottom of the bike frame and the lower half of air filter housing. This will make perfect sense as you begin this process. This is a difficult filter to access.

Brake calipers spongy feel

Does all the usual tricks include wrapping a thick bungee cord around the brake lever and leaving it overnight? That should force any residual air bubbles to the top of the system where the master cylinder should replace them with fluid.

If that does not work try installing some new bleed screws, even speed bleeders.

Rough engine running

"chipped the engine"... If you have done modifications and now your engine is not running properly, remove the modifications and see if they go away. It could be any of the things you mention, but it is most likely related to the chip installation.
